Research Interests & Areas

My research interests are in developing new statistical methods for high-throughput and complex genomic, transcriptomic, and epidemiologic data. I have been broadly interested in Bayesian statistical methods, high-dimensional data variable selection, functional data analysis, and other statistics/biostatistics areas.
